Broncos make call on Bennett, coach swap


//

Wayne Bennett will oversee his last days of Broncos training this week, with the master coach due to meet club chairman Karl Morris to thrash out the terms of his early exit, which will trigger a swap with Rabbitohs counterpart Anthony Seibold.

Reporting for Nine News on Wednesday night, Ben Dobbin revealed that Bennett's departure was nearing despite the coach's repeated claims that he would be "honouring" the final year of his lucrative contract.

The majority of the Broncos' squad was back at pre-season training today, with Bennett taking charge, but according to Dobbin they could have a fresh voice shaping 2019 preparation as early as next week.

"Wayne Bennett will be here wearing Broncos colours but he won't be wearing Broncos colours by the end of next week," reported Dobbin.

"Bennett is due to meet Karl Morris in the coming days where they'll agree to terms for Wayne Bennett to finish up here at Red Hill and head to South Sydney a year early.

"So, who will be coaching the Brisbane Broncos? Expect Anthony Seibold to arrive in Brisbane within the week where he'll take up his role a year early.

"Seibold, who was signed for 2020 will start to coach the side in the next couple of weeks, he'll be the coach in 2019 and I think for everyone's sake we can get this matter done and dusted and move forward for hopefully a successful season for the Broncos."

Broncos' bid for Cook

While Dobbin's report is the latest in a saga that has dragged on since Seibold was first linked to the Broncos post late last season, Bennett has refused to say whether he believes his axing is imminent and where that leaves him.

"I'll be honouring my contract by going to training," the 68-year-old, who has won six titles at Brisbane, this week told the Courier Mail.

"I'm not commenting any further other than to say I'll be at training."

Skipper Darius Boyd insisted Brisbane's players will cope whatever transpires.

"I would like to see Wayne finish next year on good terms but sometimes decisions are made and life goes on," Boyd said.

"What happens now is way above my head."
